LI battery problems in Mitsubishi vehicles.

It seems that everyone is having problems with these batteries at the same time. If this is new technology why wasn't it tested more rigourusly in the lab and test beds? Is this a case where sales said 'We have to be first and damn the torpedoes of failure."

I think that engineers have repeatedly underestimated the dangers of lithium-ion, Gorksi. Fifteen years ago, I interviewed Donald Sadoway of MIT and he predicted (in 1998) that engineers would need to be very, very careful with this chemistry, or it would cause problems. It now appears he was right.
